I lived through the days of life in yearning
This Sun would have set sans your thoughts
I was gifted a treasure since I found you
An excuse I found to preen myself each day
To say some words I found a friend
To write some letters I began a tradition
Your coming made a blossom bloom
One storm subsided and another arose
Aas by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)
I bowed before my indifferent beloved and saw
I reached the heights of love again and again and saw
I called out to her so much more and saw
I went on burning in my own fire of love and saw
I kept on stopping, stooping, and stifling myself and saw
I kept on writing letters of love, pouring out my heart and saw
I held hands, walked along the road and saw
Amidst prayer I opened my eyes in Church and saw
Go on lighting a bed of embers in front of my feet
Keep on sewing my chest with threads of pain
Go on, make my destination again a mirage
I have the heart of a sculptor, I am unstoppable
Berukhi by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)
When the night is dark, you shine like the moon
Why not then, a storm rise up within my heart ?
You my beloved Piya, who resides in the clouds, tell me
Why you lit ‘deep’ on earth, and gave Moon to the sky?
“YOU” by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)
People say God lives in each person
I have seen Him, in your eyes only
Everyone has his own God
One who finds God, becomes God
“GOD” by Sandeep Silas ‘deep’ in Saada Khayal (2009)
Sadak, Cycle aur Sitare!
This is my personal motto. Sadak (road) keeps me connected to ground realities; Cycle, gives self-powered locomotion; and, Sitare (stars) make me dream!
Come dream with me of a beautiful world!
